Highlands Cashiers Players is showcasing four new directors, four new plays and three actors new to the HCP stage at their March Dinner Theater from March 15-March17 and March 22-24. In The Rental, by Mark Harvey Levine, Sonya receives an extraordinary birthday present. A rented boyfriend. He's the perfect man for her but he's only there for a day. Smitten, also by Mr. Levine, is about an interesting relationship that is in trouble. Trouble leads to thought provoking laughter. Mark Harvey Levine is one of the most produced writers of short plays in the world.
Dan Borengasser wrote scripts for video and film before writing Crisis Line. This comedy is a spoof on help lines. As Dan says "stage plays are dialogue driven. Pacing is critical". Crisis Line is both funny and poignant.
Money, Honey by Betty Prisendorf, a playwright, poet and great fan of the Highlands theater, is all about perspective. A solid husband and wife combo are looking at life from 2 different perspectives which brings a lot of comedy to the table. Betty is a hometown Highlands girl, a member of Highlands Writers Group, as well as American Pen Women. Her varied body of work includes published poems, staged plays and short stories.
